The University of Washington was one of the first large schools in the U.S. to close its campus this past March over the coronavirus.

Colleges and universities face tough decisions in the coming weeks about whether to reopen their campuses this fall.

In March, as the public health threat of coronavirus became clear, higher ed institutions were some of the first to shutter, sending students and staff home and turning to remote learning to finish the semester.

Now, they need to decide what form instruction will take in the fall. Will students be able to return to campus safely? And, if not, what are the alternatives?

Diane spoke with Jeffrey Selingo, author of the forthcoming book “Who Gets In & Why: A Year Inside College Admissions.” He is also a contributor at The Atlantic and an advisor to Arizona State University.

They talked Thursday morning.
